The Role of Large Artery Plaque Imaging Features in Predicting Inflammation and Cognition

This research is directed at a major stroke source, the carotid artery, a major vessel that supplies blood to the brain. It has long been known that carotid narrowing is an important stroke risk factor. However, many patients with narrow carotids do not have strokes, and many patients with seemingly ...

Hemodynamics and Autonomic and Cognitive Performance After Carotid Revascularization Procedures

Hypothesis and Significance: Late clinical outcome and prognosis after CAS may be inferior to that after CEA in terms of autonomic modulation, hemodynamic remodeling, and cognitive function. Specific Aim: 1) To compare the impact of CEA and CAS on long-term post-operative baroreceptor function and on cognitive brain function, and analyze ...

Phase N/A

High Dose Atorvastatin for Preventing Periprocedural Ischemic Brain Damage During Carotid Artery Stenting

Chinese patients with carotid stenosis scheduled for selective CAS will be randomized into two groups. The High-dose Atorvastatin group will receive Atorvastatin 80 mg QD from 3 days before to 3 days after CAS, then 20 mg QD until 30 days after CAS, while the Conventional-dose Atorvastatin group will receive ...

3D Multi-Contrast Atherosclerosis Characterization of the Carotid Artery

All participants will undergo the conventional MRI protocol and the new imaging protocol using our developed techniques. They may have either non-contrast scans or contrast-enhanced scans or both depending on the stage of development. The comparison results between the two protocols will be used to evaluate the performance of the ...

Phase N/A

Atherosclerotic Plaque Characteristics Associated With a Progression Rate of the Plaque in Carotids and a Risk of Stroke

Objectives and aims The objective of the project is to identify measurable features of atherosclerotic plaque in carotids associated with plaque progression and increased stroke/TIA risk using duplex sonography and digital B-mode image analysis. The project aims to identify characteristics of carotic atherosclerotic plaque in ultrasound B-mode associated with a ...

Phase N/A

Carotid Revascularization and Medical Management for Asymptomatic Carotid Stenosis Trial - Hemodynamics (CREST-H)

CREST-H sites will be drawn from actively-enrolling CREST-2 centers. The additional information obtained in CREST-H in this protocol will be the MR imaging, which will be done at baseline for all patients enrolled in CREST-H, and at 1 year for those with hemodynamic impairment at baseline. The protocol will require ...

Phase N/A

Classification of Carotid Plaque With Computed Tomography With Fast kVp (Kilovolt Peak)-Switching Technique

Patients planned for CEA (carotid endarterectomy) due to carotid stenosis will be examined with one extra CT and MRI before surgery. The CEA specimen is stored in the BiKE-registry (a biobank of operated carotid plaque at the Karolinska Institute). In that registry the patients will be given a personal code ...

SouthErn China REgisTry for Stroke on Traditional Chinese Medicine

Stroke is the first most common cause of death in China and one of the major causes of functional disability in the adult population.The burden of stoke is significantly increased in China in recent years. In order to investigate the prognosis of stroke, with diagnostic and treatment information of traditional ...

Intracranial Artery Stenosis Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Aetiology and Progression

Stroke has become the leading cause of death in China. It has been shown that intracranial artery stenosis (ICAS) plays a key role in Chinese stroke patients. Although most of stenotic diseases in intracranial arteries are atherosclerotic, a substantial number of other vascular diseases, such as dissection, arteritis, moyamoya disease, ...

Phase N/A

Insulin Resistance in Patients After Carotid Revascularization

Trial Title: Insulin Resistance in Patients After Carotid Revascularization. Protocol: Investigators recruited eligible Han Chinese participants (aged 40-80) who were diagnosed with carotid stenosis and had indications for carotid revascularization surgery. Participants were excluded if participants had undergone surgical contraindication, or psychiatric disorders, or cancer, or pregnant, or lactating, or ...
